Why Participate?

  • IW13_HBLaunched in 2007, the IncentiveWorks Hosted Buyer Program was the first program of its kind in Canada. We joined together 8 partner organizations to bring qualified meeting planners from across Canada to Toronto to participate in IncentiveWorks’ private and full attendance events. This intimate networking program has a reputation of excellence.

    Now entering its 9th year, the program boasts all 8 of the original program partners and has grown to include a mix of USA and Canadian planners (plus a few international delegates too). With an eye on growth, the 2015 edition will see growth in both planner attendees and partners in the program.

    Our program design is different than most Hosted Buyer Programs on the market. This program is not built solely on appointments, but instead on the relationship value created by spending several days in ongoing communication between our buyers and program partners. We are proud to deliver an opportunity for you to generate not only new business contacts but cultivate new relationships.

    Our Founding Partners include: Hilton Worldwide, Starwood Hotels + Resorts, Tourism Toronto, Porter Airlines, Exposoft Solutions (online registration), Luxury Coach (transportation), MPI Foundation Canada, VIA Rail, Westjet (airline).
